Amber says goodbye to Lou in River City

This week in Shieldinch…


Against a stunning backdrop on the banks of Loch Lomond, Lou’s nearest and dearest gather for a special memorial to scatter her ashes. Amber’s quiet moment of reflection is interrupted by the unexpected arrival of Brooke Shaw. The tension between them is palpable, Amber makes it clear Shaw isn’t welcome but is reminded that their lies bind them together.

To make matters worse, Sonny makes an abrupt entrance at the memorial, oddly chirpy and brash. The mourners are horrified by his tactlessness and his behaviour becomes erratic at the post-memorial drinks. Concerned, Eve speaks to Maggie who urges Sonny to grieve the loss of his daughter and stop pretending all is well.

Elsewhere, Lenny’s plans to make Andrew face justice stall when a former victim Mulvaney uncovered fails to respond. Lydia suspects Andrew’s responsible for the silence and fears he’s untouchable.

Later, at the Tall Ship, Lenny is further aggravated when Andrew gloats about their failed attempts to dig into his past. Andrew reminds Lenny that any attempt to take revenge against him will result in a prison stint.

However, Andrew’s threats fall on deaf ears as Lenny takes matters into his own hands. Out of work and out of money, Nicole asks her ex-boyfriend Tyler to pay what she’s owed but he refuses and, instead, delights in humiliating her. 


At the police station, DCI Shaw questions an evasive Lenny about Andrew’s assault. Together, the pair reach an understanding and conjure up a story to downplay the assault. As witnesses, Roisin and Tommy are at odds about what to tell the police. While Roisin won’t support Andrew and sides with Lenny, Tommy wants to tell the truth, causing friction between the couple.

Tommy’s dilemma worsens when Andrew insinuates that the money he invested in the gym could be taken away if he doesn’t side with him. Elsewhere, opportunity comes calling for Nicole when she learns about Karen and Alex’s new business venture – the Merchant’s Yard.

Demanding Alex gives her a stall at the new market, Nicole is irked when her former lover declines. Unwilling to take no for an answer, Nicole reminds Alex their past affair is a secret…for now. With Nicole’s veiled threat ringing in his ears, Alex presents the idea to Karen who agrees to meet with Nicole. However, when Nicole suggests an alternative working arrangement with Karen, Alex is horrified, worried their affair will be uncovered.

Eve and Maggie discuss Sonny’s erratic behaviour in the wake of Lou’s death. While they accept everyone tackles grief differently, Eve is horrified to discover Sonny has thrown away all of Lou’s belongings. Eve challenges Sonny for being insensitive which sees him scold her for giving Lou up for adoption, suggesting her grief is, in fact, guilt.

River City, Monday and Wednesday on the BBC Scotland HD, 10 pm and Tuesday and Thursday on BBC One Scotland at 7 pm
